@Waqar786 brother, we've all been through this excuse of some grand selfless maqsad behind some erratic nonsense activity. (Sounds like an indo-pak drama serial where you watch 26 episodes to finally see an unexpected anti-climax turning the whole story on it's head and revealing the realities of all characters) Let's get one thing straight - scholars are not Khidr 3alaihis Salam and we are not living in the times of Hazrat Musa 3alaihis Salam. In our Shari3at we are obligated to act on the apparent and leave the niyyahs to Allah. For all we know, a scholar or person who is acting 100% in accordance to sacred law, he might as well be doing riya. There are ahadith about the qaari and the scholar and the mujahid who will be thrown in hellfire because they did those things to show people. Again, for all we know, someone seeming to act contrary to maslaha might as well have some grand hikmah or maqsad behind it. What's our job? See everything in the light of the Shari3at and leave the rest to Allah. And what are we seeing? A public circus of scholars! And after putting up this circus, no one can seriously expect us to entertain some grand aims behind it. To be honest, I have no idea who Nabeel Afzal is, but I've heard all these theories of 'but he's acting on a grand aim which us non-walis can't comprehend' from many more shuyukhs' followers: Hamza Yusuf, Ali jifry, Keller, nazim qubrusi, gibril Haddad, and more. all these people, to those swayed by their charm, were/are supposedly acting on some grand and secret plan to help deen and ummah. If there is some elaborate grand hikmah on the anti-jalali side, please share it or tell Nabeel Afzal to share it publicly. Otherwise it's simply disingenuous and even evil to firstly set up a public circus and then tell the awam to keep shut because there's more to it than meets the eye.
